Love Notes

Words cannot describe how thankful my husband and I are to have had Melissa as our wedding photographer! We heard about Melissa and her company when we attended my friend's wedding back in July 2010. Melissa shot our engagement photos at the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach, CA. She was SO comfortable to work with! At first we were nervous to pose in front of her, but she made everything so easy and fun! That day felt like we were just hanging out with one of our good friends for the day...completely stress-free. :) Over a year later, it was time for the BIG day. When I got stressed out, Melissa was right there for me...even offering to calm me down at 2am, if necessary. She was a true God-send on the BIG day...keeping everyone to the timeline set for the day. To say that Melissa and her assistant, Michele, were wonderful on the most important day of my life is an understatement. They truly exceeded our expectations!

Watching the slideshow of images Melissa made for us brought tears to my eyes because she truly captured all of the wonderful moments from our wedding day...

from my husband's expression as I walked down the aisle to the wild excitement on my maid of honor's face as she caught my bouquet and everything in between. As I look through each photo Melissa sent us (in awe of her amazing work), I feel so thankful we chose her as our photographer.

She is an AMAZING photographer! I am a wedding photographer myself and it was the hardest thing to do to pick a photog...but I made the best choice ever. She and I almost share a brain!

She captured every moment I could have hoped for. I recommend her 100%.

We had a destination wedding in San Diego in July, and hired Melissa McClure as our photographer. Melissa is, to put it simply, amazing. Melissa was the first vendor we hired for our wedding. We did a ton of research looking for venues (all online) and every picture we found that we truly loved was one of Melissa’s. She is an incredibly talented artist and has an amazing eye for detail. Melissa has a knack for finding poses and settings that you just don’t see all that often.

Suddenly, a simple arch or doorway became a gorgeous spot, with the light shining perfectly! Melissa’s work speaks for itself. Unbelievably talented woman.

She is a very calming influence and was able to get our pictures done SO fast that we were able to join our guests at Cocktail Hour. When we showed the teasers to family the next day, at the turn of each picture an aunt declared “that could be on a brochure!” about every photo! And she is right, every single photo Melissa takes is breathtaking.

Melissa shot our destination wedding in Maui in November and I can not express how blessed I feel to have found the PERFECT photographer. Her ability to capture the 'moment' still amazes me...and when I look at the pictures she's taken, it puts such a huge smile on my face. I will admit that being the picture fanatic that I am, I completely underestimated the importance of having a good photographer.

IT wasn't until I saw Melissa's pictures of us from less than a month ago that I realized that she is worth her weight in gold and I really feel like we lucked out finding her. She is truly amazing.
